Kamchatka has approved its long-term fish breeding and production program to be in effect through 2012, REGNUM reports, citing a source in the regional government.
Under plans, over the next three years the sector will receive more than $117m in predominantly federal support.
The program implementation is expected to boost Kamchatka’s seafood production to 850,000 tons a year by 2012, the source said.
The region’s fishing sector gives more than half of Kamchatka’s industrial output and accounts for over 90% of its exports.
